Ground Zero For Trumpism

North Carolina will once again be ground zero for determining the future of the GOP. If Lara Trump runs for senate and can win the primary it will prove Trump still has a stronghold on the party. However, if she fails to secure the nomination it could prove Trump is losing clout which is not uncommon for former presidents especially one-termers

A central issue in last week’s impeachment trial was whether former President Donald J. Trump deserves a political future. But his acquittal sparked speculation on Sunday about the electoral prospects of another Trump: his daughter-in-law, Lara. Senator Richard M. Burr’s decision to vote for the conviction of Mr. Trump incensed many Republicans in his home state of North Carolina, and in doing so reignited talk that Ms. Trump, a native of Wilmington, N.C., would seek the Senate seat Mr. Burr will vacate in 2022.
